Seoul : North Korea has fired two railway-borne tactical guided missiles. According to the media, despite new US sanctions, North Korea has conducted this third missile test in the month.
South Korea’s military said it had discovered two missiles fired into the sea by North Korea, its third missile test this month. A day after this, the state media of North Korea gave this information.
Shortly before this test, North Korea’s foreign ministry criticized the US for imposing new sanctions on the country’s past tests and warned that if the US maintains a confrontational attitude, there will be strict action against it. More strict steps will be taken.
North Korea has intensified testing of new missiles in recent months. Some experts have said that North Korean leader Kim Jong is revisiting his well-planned strategy to pressure his neighbors and the US through missile tests before offering talks to demand some concessions.
North Korea’s official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said Friday’s exercise was aimed at testing the capability of the army’s rail-borne missile regiment. North Korea’s ‘Rodong Sinmun’ newspaper published pictures of two separate missiles flying above train coaches engulfed in smoke.
Let us tell you that before this North Korea has successfully tested a hypersonic missile. It was also claimed that this would significantly increase the country’s nuclear war defense capability. It was the second test in a week by North Korea of an alleged hypersonic missile. Earlier it had first test-fired a hypersonic missile in September.
On January 5 also, North Korea had tested a suspected ballistic missile in its eastern sea area. Some experts say North Korea is conducting such tests to put more pressure on its rivals to accept it as a nuclear-powered country and ease international sanctions on the country.
